Every Doll Needs A Ken

A ken Doll for all Seasons

When asked their names, these dudes answered,
"Ken, Ken & Ken."

Did you know that Ken & Barbie are on again? Well apparently after a six year break-up, the pair Made in toy heaven are once again an item (but still sold seperately) So after more than 3 decades of a glamerous lover affair, is Ken finally gonna Put a ring on it?  "Well no," says Liz from the Barbie campaign in Times Square. Proving that even plastic women suffer the same drama as the rest of us. However until 7pm today, you can come to Times Sq. and have your pic taken with the latest additions to the Ken line of dolls for Valentines Day. The real life models are boxed for purchase...but not for sale!

Furrrocious...is that a word?
Can someone tell me where the funeral is being held for the animal that died tragically to make this outfit??   There is a person underneath all that purple fur. And he called himself Marco Polo - Who knows where he bought this ensemble, but what was the cashier  thinking when Marco said, "...And I'll take the leg warmers too!"

On 44th & 7th ave he finishes his phone call and poses for the camera. "Did you get the leg warmers, you gotta get the leg warmers," says Marco.
This outfit is the result of two fur coats being cut and stitched together.  The leg warmers are actually the sleeves from coat #2 and the hat is left over material. The rest of this coat was turned into a vest for his wife....so as it turns out, it is a "His" and "Hers" ensemble. And just in case you were wondering, he has several more.

International Eye Candy!

Tyler, Erika & Maneula shop till they drop - or freeze!

That's Italian for  "Fuggedaboudit!"
 G'day Mates!

It's a balmy 23 degrees in NYC and while a saucy Aussie name Tyler exchanges cameras and photo- ops with Italian bombshells Erica and Maneula, I think to myself,  "Jeesh do all tourists look this friggin good!?"

While a massive cyclone prepares to ravage his native Australlia, Tyler will be taking in a Broadway play in the Big Apple "Tonight I am going to see The Lion King," says Tyler. He's he been trekking his way through SoHo, Greenwich Village, and of course what would Manhattan shopping be without going broke on 5th ave. Speaking of spending sprees - Maneula and Erica returning from Macy's confirm my suspicion that indeed Louis Vuitton bags are cheaper in Italy and from the looks of things they will be doing quite a bit of shopping for the remainder of their visit.

Ciao Bambini!
